This Spring and Summer, make space in your diary for the return of Hospice in the Weald’s Open Gardens.
Giving a rare chance for you to take a walk through the gates of this year’s gardens.

This year we have 33 private gardens opening to the public bringing another chance to enjoy some of the finest gardens across West Kent & Northern East Sussex. Cottage gardens, wildlife havens or village walkabouts – there’s something here for everyone. This year has some beautiful new gardens in the calendar along with ever-popular venues such as Long Barn.
